Mexico City is huge so although walking between neighborhoods is not recommended, taking a walking tour in the City Center, Roma, La Condesa or Coayacan, is a great way to get a feel for the city. Our tours are personalized, so if you want to explore a specific area, let us know.
Each walking tour is a couple of hours, but we recommend you consider it as a half day tour, so we can take our time, stop for food or refreshments, and give you time to really explore. These are perfect introductions to each area, which you can then follow with a visit to some of the wonderful museums and galleries in each neighborhood. Here are some examples of the walking tours we arrange.
Mexico City Historical Center
Downtown Mexico City is a place full of attractions. You could spend days enjoying the culture and history in this area. This tour gives you an introduction and orientation to Mexico City’s Historical Center. By foot, you’ll see some of the incredible palaces, museums and squares that form this district – the Aztec temple, the Metropolitan Cathedral, the Palace of Fine Arts, the Alameda Central Park and Diego Riviera Mural Museum. There are plenty of opportunities for photos and of course, we can recommend some local spots for great tacos!
Roma and La Condesa
We love both of these areas and recommend them both as areas to use as your base when staying in Mexico City. Roma has more of a local neighborhood feel and is perfect if you want to explore art deco buildings and Mexican culture. Roma is buzzing with shops, restaurants, parks, street art and markets. There is always something to see in these streets. La Condesa next door is where you’ll find a more upscale feel – designer shops, fancy restaurants and long boulevards. It’s also famous for its nightlife, so we recommend coming here to walk in the afternoon and enjoy the evenings! During this walking tour, you’ll see these beautiful streets full of architectural styles, as well as some time in Parque Mexico. Mexico City never ceases to amaze with its green spaces.
A trip Coayocan in the south of Mexico City is a must. You’ll probably want to combine this walking tour with a trip to the Frida Kahlo museum (La Casa Azul). Known for decades as one of the most bohemian areas of the city, you do not want to miss a photo at the famous coyote fountain. You’ll also visit beautiful and unique churches, parks and the fascinating markets of the area. And of course, we’ll take you to see the hot spots where famous Mexican artists made their mark.
